We had an early dinner (around 4pm). Happy Hour menu is fantastic. $8 dozen raw oysters (we had 2 rounds) - they were great. Fish bites were the only thing we didn't really love. I had the Ahi Tuna Poke Bowl - awesome. My wife...More

We stopped over in Jacksonville and had dinner at the Blue Fish. Crab Bisque was excellent and so was Arugula Pear salad. Everything was tasty and service was exceptional!

The fish was fresh, well-prepared, and delicious. The service was gracious and professional. This was a group dinner which can stretch any restaurant, yet everything was handled smoothly. There was no shortage of food and we all left sated. Go for the crab cakes!

get off at McDuff and go east toward the river. Turn right on St Johns. The restaurant will be on the right in the Avondale shopping area.

It's local. It's been part of the local dining scene in one form or another (Remember Sterling's?) for over 25 years.
